And the angel said to her in reply, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore, the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. (Luke 1:35)

Parent Teacher Meetings
Thank you to all the parents from Pre-Primary to Year 6 for making the time on Tuesday to meet with your child’s classroom teacher. I hope this opportunity provided you with a greater insight into your child’s academic, social, and emotional progress so far this year. As this is part of the school’s formal reporting process, teachers will be in contact with those parents who either did not attend or book a meeting.
